The Scene for June 15, 2012

This summer is just blasting past.  Do you have a summer camp happening at your theater?  Leave information in the comments, and we'll  see about putting together a summer camp show guide.

This weekend, City Theatre is presenting a playwright's conference called CityWrights.  The Drama Queen fill us in on the event, which includes playwrights Christopher Durang and Leslie Ayvazian reading some of their work.  Also this weekend, one night only on June 16th  Deco Drive's Louis Aguirre & SocialMiami's Aaron Glickman will star in a benefit reading of Sam Shepard's True West. All proceeds will be donated to the Miami Theater Center (formerly known as The PlayGround Theatre).

On the horizon; Cabaret Verboten at ArtsGarage, Standing on Ceremony at the Broward Center, and The Brand New Kid at the Kravis Center.  Two of these three shows are produced at least in part by City Theatre.

Here's what's playing on a very very busy Scene this weekend:


Miami Stage Door Theatre opens Deathtrap at the Byron Carlyle Theater.  It's Broadway's longest running murder mystery.

The national tour of La Cage Aux Folles plays at The Broward Center through June 24, 2012.  And we're not going to make any jokes about George Hamilton, because he's a hometown boy (West Palm Beach).  We're fairly certain those stories of Burt Reynolds giving him wedgies between classes at Palm Beach High are just vicious rumors we thought up for our own amusement.
